It is the organisation’s policy to provide and promote equality and fairness for all employees, other workers and job applicants.
Equality Act 2010 protects people against discrimination, harassment and victimisation in the workplace in Britain because of their protected characteristics. We do not discriminate anyone on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation. These characteristics are knows as protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010. Selection for employment, promotion, training or any other benefit within our organisation is solely on the basis of the individuals’ ability. We encourage all employees within our organisation and assist them to develop their full potential and their talent to maximise our efficiency and improve their future employability.
As an organisation, we are truly committed to ensuring equality of opportunity both as an employer and as a tourism agency. This commitment, however, does not solely stem from the legal requirements to comply, but also from the organisation’s recognition and acceptance that there are moral, social and good business reasons to embrace equality and diversity. This means that equality and diversity is central and integral to all the tasks that we perform as an organisation.
Our actions truly demonstrate that valuing and promoting equality and diversity is vital to good people management and it will strive to eliminate discrimination and embrace diversity in employment and service delivery within our offices.
In addition to the above, to promote equality and diversity we have set up a Diversity and Inclusion Action Group, its aim is to ensure that our mission to support and represent Diversity and Inclusion across the organisation is prioritised and put into action. As part of this group, colleagues from around the world have formed networks to offer guidance, support and education on specific topics that impact our employees.
